Categories are only eligible for South African non-English languages. All entries must be at least 70% in either Afrikaans, isiZulu, isiXhosa, isiNdebele, siSwati, Xitsonga, Tshivenda, Setswana, Sepedi or Sesotho. All entries must come with an English translation.

Students may only enter in the student category. Where possible, student work should be submitted by the School/College/University, rather than directly by the student.

All categories are single entries, unless otherwise stated. For example, Posters must be entered individually, not several as one (1) entry. If in the opinion of the jury, several pieces constitute a campaign, then these entries will be combined into one campaign award.
